TORTURE: Sister Dianna Ortiz, OSU "U.S. personnel were present in interrogation and torture rooms, in Guatemala in 1989 when Sister Ortiz was kidnapped, taken to a secret prison and repeatedly raped and tortured by troops commanded by General Hector Gramajo (a CIA asset and graduate of the U.S. Army School of the Americas). http://www.ckln.fm/~asadismi/ciatorture.html Eric LeCompte, Dir. of SOA Watch, who lived in a Washington, D.C. Assisi Community where Sr. Ortiz lived for a decade, describes Sr. Ortiz screams in the night. (link to vid) Ortiz , a speaker in Buffalo at the 24^th annual Rev. Joseph Bissonette Latin American dinner, said there are more than a half-million survivors of torture living in the US; more than 150 governments, led now by the US, engage in torture: /Many of our fellow Americans wear a blindfold hiding from the truth of what our government is doing. But each of you has eyes to see, ears to hear, and a voice to oppose this crime against humanity/. Sr. Dianna is the author of The Blindfold's Eyes http://www.maryknollmall.org/description.cfm?ISBN=1-57075-435-7
